Cablevision asks FCC for a waiver to encrypt all Clear QAM channels

This is just ridiculous. That’s all I’m going to say about that. If this passes, it will be a darned shame.


But it seems to us that Cablevision is going to have a hard time arguing to protect these channels in the clear, when it’s the every same channels you can get for free with an antenna. Add in all the customers who brought home a new TV and just plugged it into the cable and did a channel scan, and you have yourselves a waiver we’d like to see denied.
